Villa Cozzo 3 venti is a remarkable architect-designed house placed on high ground at the most south-eastern tip of the island. The Milanese architect Andrea Marlia, who also planned the airport in Pantalleria, let himself be inspired by Siciliy’s charm when he built this house.
The Villa is situated in Portopalo di capo Passero, which, granted, isn’t the prettiest of Sicily’s towns; It nonetheless preserves the authentic charm of a port town. The 30 000 m2-large estate, on which dry stone walls, cactus figs and locust trees reside, is surrounded by large fields, greenhouses and a breathtaking 180-degree view of the sea. The local lime plaster – together with the cement used to design the outdoor area – gives the house a natural, earth-warm feeling; allowing the building to perfectly fit into its surroundings. The relaxed atmosphere can especially be felt on the terrace, which is doted with a pergola and an outdoor shower.
The large swimming pool is located in the middle of a lawn and is reminiscent of the “gebbia”, a traditional Sicilian water collection basin. Next to it, under the pergola, you can feel the breeze on hot days in the shade and enjoy the day.
The indoor area is especially defined by the nice large rooms and the dark plaster, which is accentuated by ochre and red tones, as well as by the particular effect produced by the rays of light funnelled through the shutters made of weathering steel. The heart of the villa is the large living-dining room, which opens up onto the terrace through a glass door. The furnishing is minimalistic and pure. The house has four rooms and is ideal for large groups.
Carratois, one of Sicily’s most beautiful sand beaches is a mere three kilometers away. The beaches of Isola delle Correnti as well as of Portopalo are repectively three and five kilometres away. Due to its fishing port, Portopalo is an excellent place to eat excellent fish.
